The music fits the design as well, accompanying the throwback 8-bit mood without being annoying and repetitive, which a surprising number of games can't seem to get right. But the main draw to Eliss is its originality in gameplay, one that is perfectly suited for the iPhone, which has garnered the game a lot of praise and recognition, deservedly so. We hope that developers continue to progress the platform and think outside the box, much as sole designer Steph Thirion has done. If so, the iPhone / iPod Touch may just become the best gaming platform as Apple has boasted".
